It's a little bit bloggy, a little bit wiki, it's Knol (meaning "unit of knowledge"), the latest Google project to be hailed as a revolution before anybody's actually tried it, and -- if the tech industry was like a Rocky movie -- the Clubber Lang to Wikipedia's Rocky Balboa. But leave to it Wired take the rhetoric down a notch and ruin everybody's fight-inspired headlines. Thanks a lot.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
